I'm 23 years old and have been married for one year. I'm a country girl, who's husband has city tastes, so my recipes will vary. I love to cook, it's one of my favorite things to do.Not only do I find it relaxing, but putting a great meal on the table gives me a huge sense of accomplishment.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to do is bake. I love baking cookies, pies, and cakes. I especially love to decorate them for special occasions. I just bought my first kitchen aid (the artisan) mixer and I'm so excited to branch out even more with my baking. It's my dream to one day own my very own bakery. I'm really trying to hone in my decorating skills.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is when we all stay up late on Christmas or Thanksgiving Eve cooking together. There's just something about the whole family cooking together, even if we do have to fight for counter space or certain pots and pans!
My cooking triumphs
My best cooking triumph was when I made homeade bread for the first time and it came out perfectly. Even my picky husband loved it!
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedy was a kitchen fire. I was trying to make french fries like a certain chef on tv, and the process involved two frying vessels. One at a moderate heat and one at very high heat. I had succeeded with the first one, and when I went to put the fries into the later, the grease sloshed over into the burner and ignited. (I have an electric stove) There was so much grease that the old salt trick wouldn't work. It just kept burning! I have to take the little bowl out from underneath with tongs and take it to the sink to extinguish it! I swear, I saw my newly furnished apartment going up in flames!!!
